The Canadian Battlefield South of Caen. 

Carte 07

Operations ATLANTIC, SPRING and TOTALIZE.

Over a three week period, Canadian Forces, as part of the British 2nd Army, threaten to break through the Panzer Divisions on the Eastern Flank of the Germans, thus relieving pressure on US Forces in the West who break out West of St Lô.

From then on the campaign stalemate is broken and a furious mobile war ensues.

Visit the Canadian Memorials at Hill 68 and 140 and the Cintheaux Canadian War Cemetery.
